I'm sorry I am persistent, but I have to point out she will NOT be applying for a job with an employer, she will be either self-employed or will open a Ltd company. That's the procedure I am interested in.
Also, can she stay with me without limits regardless whether she works or not, that's all.The UKBA points you mentioned about 3 months visiting is a concern. If she can reside for up to 3 months, how can I increase that period.
Also the issue regarding her daughter and education. Can she go to school here? Please explain these to me in simple layman's terms without links to the complicated UKBA explanations on their website.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX to me now :)
2. If she can show that she is self-sufficient then she can also remain in the UK for over 3 months this means that provided she can show that she is being supported by a family member she can remain in the UK without obtaining any permission.
Just to make sure, at what point and who does she need to show or tell that she is with a family member: when she enters the first time in July to the immigration officials or after the 3 months does she contact the home office, how does that part work?
That's all :)
Me - happy :) In a nutshell, she (they) can stay with me, if she wants to work as self-employed she can, daughter can go to school. That's the most important to me :):)
Another quick note: when her daughter comes over in May after she finishes school there, she will travel with me (with her mother's official authorisation of course).
I have been subjected to persistent checks every time since last september when her mother was refused entry. The IO at Dunkirk told me last week that when my passport is scanned it comes up with a big warning to "check my boot if I'm smuggling someone" and they extensively checked my passport when I was travelling by plane last month too.
My worry is if I travel with her daughter (my step-daughter to be) and I get stopped for their extensive checks, could the IO cause us trouble? She is coming on a 6 week holiday as far as they are concerned with me and she will not look for a job which seems to be their biggest concern..do you have any advice or thoughts on that one?
First part - already sorted and dealt with by notary/court letter with official translation too. That is not so much of an issue.
I'm more concerned about whether they would refuse entry to my step-daughter..would they have any grounds to do so in your opinion?
Apologies, I think you misunderstood me because I didn't highlight the fact that my step-daughter would travelling over to the UK with me BEFORE Croatia's entry on the 1.July, during May. My mistake, should have highlighted that.I only mentioned it once, at the top - sorry:

"Another quick note: when her daughter comes over in May after she finishes school there, she will travel with me (with her mother's official authorisation of course)."
So the question still remains:Should we have anything to worry about considering the extensive checks I am put through every time?
